In the Speaker Nite series, we examine issues that were important during TR’s lifetime and continue to be relevant today.
As part of its ongoing Speaker Nite series, the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site (TR Site) welcomes Nancy J. Rosenbloom Ph.D. Dr. Rosenbloom’s talk – “TR’s Little Anarchist’: Sonya Levien’s Journey From the Tenements to the Editor’s Desk” – focuses on the life of Sonya Levien, a Russian immigrant to the United States, who became one of the highest earning female screenwriters in Hollywood in the 1930s and would help a number of directors and film stars transition from silent films to talkies. In 1955 she received an Academy Award for her screenplay Interrupted Melody. Dr. Rosenbloom will explore Levien’s friendship with Theodore Roosevelt and the progressive work that the two collaborated on in New York City.
